    More fine work there, Steve. Man, you sure get your hands on a lot of maple. That stuff must grow on trees around there or something.

    Another beauty, Steve. Man, pretty soon you're going to be real good at this turning stuff!
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Steve...I like this alot. However.. I like it without the finial. I know you went to all the work to add that but to me I like it just by's a keeper either way. Great job!

    BTW...this is an opinion....not a critique.
